If you host multiple websites within the very same account and one of them is hacked, it's very likely that all of them will be hacked after that. There are various reasons why this may happen, the two most popular are: using really weak passwords or using outdated scripts with widely known weaknesses. In this way, a single compromised site will do a lot of damage to all your sites, since gaining access to a single script normally allows hackers to access the whole hosting account. This is the reason why we have developed a new security option called JailHost. Once activated, this feature will literally lock a website within its folder, so if an attacker takes over it, all the other sites in the account will be hidden. Thus they'll be resistant to further intrusion. The JailHost option does not mean that you should not keep your websites up-to-date, but it will greatly reduce the damage.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites inside a shared hosting account from our firm, you can protect them using the JailHost option with just a few mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. This option is available with all packages and can be enabled for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have separate folders, so files for different Internet sites don't get mixed up like it frequently happens with other Control Panels. We have not activated JailHost by default because you might use scripts which require access to folders outside the main website folder and this option could interfere with their correct functioning, but protecting all the other folders is very easy. If any secured site gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to restore it very quickly as we'll have multiple daily backup copies of your entire account and you will even be able to search the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost is provided with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages, so in case you host several different websites, you can separate them from each other to keep them safe. This feature has to be activated for every single site and is not active by default, to avoid interference with scripts which require access to multiple folders inside the account. Activating it for all other websites will take no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. Unlike many other Control Panels, Hepsia does not place different sites under the main domain folder. Instead, each and every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, that makes it easier to take care of and shield your sites. In case that a site in your account is hacked, not only will your other Internet sites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected website very quickly because we will have multiple backups of your whole content.
